Kids' Movie Day

With school holidays around the corner, the thought of bringing a home to see movies seems to be a good idea. After deciding which home to bring for movies, we start planning on the logistics. I was joined by joined by Yuva, Aishi, Jeff and Chewman. We had breakfast before proceeding to the home and our arrival was expected. First activity we did was to distribute the tags which the children were excited. Took almost 30 minutes to get the whole 26 of them!

Distributing the name tags

Cant wait to go out!

Camera shy is not the word here for sure!

Getting ready

Thanks Yuva for this!

The final output!

Tell me which kids wont get excited with Angry Mickeys? :)

Ready to go!

Not photo-shy at all

After to the movies, we also bring the children to McD for lunch. The children's Happy Meal comes with toys....and guess what, The Croods toys! :) One funny thing was, we went into the cinemas, watch the movie and come out..... without taking any photos! Probably because we dont want to take photo the Croods way! (You have to watch the movie to understand what I am trying to say here)

This image will have to do.....

The kids were immerse into setting up the toys after the meal. We spent the time playing with the kids and also spoke to Mr Muthu and understand the home's situation. The home requires what every other homes requires which is the basic groceries.

Not an easy task for us either!

Heading home after makan...
 We left McD about 330pm to head back to the home. Jeff dropped the children off at the home and proceed in getting the cake, while we spend time with the kids. I didnt know that we also have magicians among us.. ;)

Never camera shy at all.

Concentrating on the toy

Feeding the Poor - Feb 2013

As per planned earlier, this month is our second month in Feeding the Poor Program. The fund for this month is based on the initial collection of RM3200, which RM1044 was utilised for February 2013.

The groceries were purchased earlier in order to be pack and ready to be delivered. The items delivered are the standard groceries - 10kg pack of rice, cooking oil, choco powder, mee hoon, a tray of eggs, maggie mee, canned beans and biscuits. I had the great companion of Melvin, Steele and Florence to accompany on the goceries delivery run around. On top of the delivery, we also have Florence distributing angpow to the homes as well. You should see the recipients faces and especially the kids as this was something that was unexpected. Its great to see smiling and happy faces even their circumstances are not the best.

We delivered the groceries on the morning of 23rd January 2013. We loaded the van (Thanks Melvin!) with all the groceries and proceed to our first recipient.

Loaded and ready to roll!
